Penalties for the crime include decades in prison; thousands of dollars in fine; and issues pertaining to employment, child custody, and even immigration. Wanting to avoid these harsh penalties, the charged individual contacted The Law Offices of Ned Barnett for help. After an aggressive defense, the client pled to enticing a child with the intent to commit a felony – a lesser offense. As a result, attorney Barnett was able to negotiate a deal in which the client would be sentenced to five years of deferred adjudication and no sex offender registration.
